Neighbors had interesting reaction to a woman singing from her apartment window (video)

Standard

Hi Readers ๐Ÿ™‚

I wanted to share things that are interesting. Little bit of a good energy never hurt nobody ๐Ÿ™‚ So here it is, one of those posts.

 

The twitter user continued to say that this was happening in Santiago, Chile during a government imposed curfew following demonstrations.

Singer: Ayleen Jovita Romero
Singing: โ€žEl derecho de vivir en pazโ€

 

I hope this will warm you up in this upcoming cold days.

First post via the WordPress App

Hi my Readers ๐Ÿ™‚

Since I was on the road..in the sky..in another country.. whatever.. I decided to download the WordPress App.

 

I am the type of person that wants to sit down on a PC and write my posts on the actual keyboard. But I already have my phone so I decided to try this app out.

I also don’t want to hang too much on my phone because it is not good for my eyes and I noticed that I am constantly bringing it closer and closer to my eyes, even if there is no need for that.

But, it is what it is.

Luckily for me, this WordPress App turned out really good. It doesn’t take up much space and it doesn’t lag.

On my previous post I had previously prepared the textual part and just added the pictures. But this one is completely new.

What it lacks of is spell proofing. Typing on phone makes it especially mistake – prone. Or maybe it has and I just still haven’t found out about it.

I also can’t find the text alignment option. And to have one post put together that option is kinda necessary.

I will update you how it goes but other than those few things, so far is looking good.

What do you use to write your posts? I genuinely am curious.

Have a good one.

They sold me expired vitamins

They sold me expired vitamins

Hi my Readers ๐Ÿ™‚

I am currently traveling and because I will be doing that for long amount of time, I prepared. (YES – and I didn’t have internet for a long time so this is written so long ago but the topic is still relevant so I decided to post it anyways).ย  Last year I was definitely more prepared but this time I forgot so many things because I was little bit hectic and chaotic.

Last year I packed a regular size backpack and forgot nothing, and this year I had extra bag and forgot actually important things.

One of those things was magnesium. I use magnesium for the muscles when I am active for a long time.

I went from another country’s airport and decided to travel through the terminals to get magnesium from their pharmacy. And I did that. Except, they sold me 2 boxes of magnesium without even mentioning that they expire in one week. I’m not sure about the law and if they are obligated to tell but one week and they let me buy 2 boxes knowing that I am in an airport and am actually traveling so I won’t be able to return them. Not cool!

And I actually asked them to recommend a good one because they didn’t have chart on the boxes about how much magnesium they had.

What do you think about this behavior? Do you know if your country is obligated to tell about the expiration date or return them when they reach the point where you don’t have enough time to use them up?

Leave some thoughts if you feel like venting on this subject.

Have a nice one.

Nails of the week

Standard

Hi my Readers ๐Ÿ™‚

If you follow me, you are already familiar that I take pictures of my nails right before I am about to wipe them down. Just like inย Glitter over regular nail polish โ€“ nails before I remove the polish ๐Ÿ˜€ย  andย Theme color I like these daysย andย Festive nails ๐Ÿ™‚ย and many more. Just search for โ€žnailsโ€œ in the search button on the side of the blog post and you’ll see ๐Ÿ˜€

This time is not different. And I even tried them to fix them a little bit so they look somewhat presentable. I really liked the design especially because I did them after a long time not wearing nail polish so here they are ๐Ÿ™‚

Bought a cheap alternative to the tangle teaser

Standard

Hi my Readers,

Long time no….read…or something like that. ๐Ÿ˜€

Recently I bought a chep alternative to the famous “Tangle Teaser”. Since I havent use the original one, I won’t make a comparison but only will write my opinion, so If you are still interested – keep on reading ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m constantly trying out new things and hyped products so you can also read about how wooden comb works.

To give you a perspective, the botom half of my hair is carefully bleached and that same half is turquoise as you can see in this post. So it is not that damaged except for the ends.

When I saw this blush, it immediately reminded me of the original, except it had handle. The color played a huge role in my decision to buy it ๐Ÿ˜€ It was really cheap so even though I had enough hair things, I bought it.

First impression: dry hair

Upon the first strokes I’ve noticed that because it is made out of plastic, it makes a huge noise while I was brushing. After that, I’ve noticed that it was not catching my whole hair since the bristles are so short (it may be the way it works). I also noticed that it is not detangling my hair really well even though I star at the ends and continue upwards. In fact, very small section of my hair was tangled and this brush was not able to detangle it.

Since the first use – I was rarely using it. I’m currently on vacation and I took only this brush only so I can use more often and give my opinion.

I was not that impressed, but then I tried it on wet hair.

First impression: wet hair

I washed my hair and when is wet, I almost never brush it, but this time was an exception because I needed it to dry faster and also wanted to try the brush on wet hair. It turns out that it brushes wet hair really good. It might have something to do with the conditioner that I used, but still, I was interested. Many of the brushes I have really pull my hair when is wet, but not this one. It might be something to do with the short bristles.

Woolworths, Woolworth, hair, hair brush, brush,

Conclusion:

As you noticed, the brush works really good with wet hair. I don’t recommend brushing the hair while it’s wet, but if you have to, try a brush like this.

Have you tried the original “Tangle Teaser” and some cheap alternative? I’m genuinely curious to know if it works different.

Have a nice one ๐Ÿ™‚

Contour laugh

Standard
Contour laugh

Hi my Readers ๐Ÿ™‚

I am a person that really likes makeup and wants to extenuate it. To be visible. With my pale skin, all the bronzers looked oooorange on me. And with heavy hand – I looked like Garfield.

I looked and looked in the stores and I couldn’t find anything that wasn’t orange on me. I also searched for a palette – still no luck.

Then I turned to the nearest bazaar. Granted, the ingredients in that cheap makeup are probably awful, but when there is no option – for me, I went for it. And sure enough – I found something that I like. Few years ago I found a single shadow that worked really good on me. And it was taking me ages to spend it. I got bored and found myself a palette. It was so cheap and exactly the gray tones I was looking for.

The laugh was that it had an eyeshadow brush in it. If there was a person that is not into makeup that much, wouldn’t have known how to use this product. So, clearly, there is not much thought put into these products.

I removed it because I had to travel and I’m currently not at home. But it was one of those sponge applicator on one and paint brush type on the other end.

The sades are definitely waay too dark for me but I’m mixing it with the first shade and it works really good.

Ingredients

They are probably really bad and I will see if my skin reacts to them becauae I am using it only under my cheeks. I will most definitely update you if there are some changes.

Also, if there is cool toned alternative to a contour pallet like this that you know of and will not break the bank account, let me know because I’m kinda not ok with using this product for extensive period of time ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a nice one.

Can summer finally come… or at least spring

Standard

Hi my Readers ๐Ÿ™‚

Finally something relaxing on this blog. ๐Ÿ˜€ But when you think about it, it is not. Damn…why did I thought about it…..

I am longing for spring to come. We had 3 days with sun but the nights were really cold. Other that that, it has been COOOLD! From the โ€žfirst world problemsโ€œ – I have so much summer clothes that I haven’t even worn because it is so cold. It is mid may and we have to use the heater. And to think that Canadians were complaining to their winters – oh, you haven’t seen cold… ๐Ÿ˜€

By now, I was on my balcony surrounded with flowers and green trees with the sun causing me sunburn. So if someone is lucky to have sunburn – here isย How to avoid and treat sunburn ย ๐Ÿ™‚

storm weather clouds.jpg

And now for the โ€žrest of the worldโ€œ problems ๐Ÿ˜€

When I come to think about this, it is global warming. We are contributing so much to this that we are changing the climate to no limits. We have tornadoes where they’ve never been, snow in summer and hot sun in winter.

With the technology that exists, we should be able to stop this, not enlarge it. But, I guess, there is no money in that…

I haven’t eaten some of my favorite fruits in so long because they are next to impossible to find, when I find them they are TOO damn expensive and even with that, they don’t taste the same. We used to have apricot tree, cherry tree and blue plums and now they are not producing much or they are dry because of the cold.

I live in country where agriculture used to be on top of the game. Now it’s so bad that is almost extinct. I am so sad. But I can’t dwell so I DO something about the climate changing.

If you want to know what are the simple steps to help our only Earth, I have already written about this subject. You can just slick on this link:ย Dreaming of a plastic-free world and it will take you to see the simple things we can do to help the environment ๐Ÿ™‚

Until then: remember to do something good ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a nice one ๐Ÿ˜‰

Aussie hair products

Hi my Readers ๐Ÿ™‚

I am making beauty related post – wow ๐Ÿ˜€

I am working around some products that I had high hopes for but ended up not working for me. Luckily, I investigate sooo much before purchasing so I don’t have much of them. ๐Ÿ™‚

This time is not one of those times ๐Ÿ˜€

Aussie 3 minute miracle reconstructor

aussie repair miracle 3 minute miracle reconstructor balm mint extract conditioner apres shampoing 3 minute balm mint extract

I remember a time on YouTube when everyone was talking about this Aussie products. I am now thinking that those were sponsored because there is no way everybody to be so contempt about this because it does nothing.

A while ago Aussie finally became available to me. It was expensive but knowing that everybody talked only good, I thought – it’s worth the money.

I have been using this products for almost a year – not constantly, but I am trying to use them up because I don’t want to be wasteful and every time I’m using them, I get reminded how they don’t do anything for my hair.

It does not smell that good, but I thought – ok, so it might be good for the hair so I’m not going to mind the smell too much.

This one I can see maybe something going on. It does not do too much for my hair but at least smells nice, which is a great improvement minding the 1 minute one ๐Ÿ˜€

Because my hair is now turquoise and if you want to see what I am using and an updated color, just click over the highlighted words, I am trying to use this conditioners up by adding some to my hair while the hair dye is sitting on my hair. So, at the same time, I get conditioning done as well as neutralizing the harsh chemicals that are in a hair dye.

If you want to try it and decide for yourself, you can click here. And for the german version click here.

I bought a shampoo too and when I traveled it was so meh that I left it behind, didn’t look back and even forgot that I bought it ๐Ÿ˜€ But if you want to try it and decide for yourself, you can click here. And for the german version click here.

I don’t want to be harsh, but this products really didn’t do much for my hair.

 

I still enjoy beauty and cosmetics but being what I am, I am going to include more posts about everything else. How we can improve not only the beauty from the outside, but the internal beauty as well.

 

Did you have similar experience with this products or it’s just my hair and my high expectations? Really curious to know.

Have w nice weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

Dreaming of a plastic-free world

Standard

Hi my Readers ๐Ÿ™‚

I worked sooooo much on this list of โ€žwhat can a person do to help the environmentโ€œ and cut down on plastic. I kept adding to the list until I thought it was enough for me to post it. I did some research and really hope you take into consideration some of this recommendations.

There are German links to the recommendations as well. Just scroll down ๐Ÿ™‚

First of all, I promise I am not one of those obnoxious their – believes pushers. I want to inform people because when I was doing some projects around this subject, I’ve noticed that not many know how important they are in slowing down global warming.

With this rates that global warming is growing, we need to do more to prevent this. I’m not going to bother you with facts, but am going to write few things that we as individuals can do to slow it a little bit down. Again: if you think โ€žI am such a small individual in comparison to mansions and corporationsโ€œ – you are NOT! You are big enough to make a change. And few people like you – now we have 5 people. Few more – now we have 10 people doing their part ๐Ÿ™‚

What can I do?ย 

No pictures – only suggestions

Here are few things you can do to make a difference: (german and european links will be linked under the first part of this writing)

 

Reusable strawsย 

There are options for reusable straws.

Metal straws – they come with brush to clean the with and plush to store them in and they also come in different colors.

Foldable metal straws – come with box (but it is still made out of plastic) so easily take them with you. It’s a keychain ๐Ÿ™‚ and they also come in 2 packย and in different looks.

Glass straws – easy to see if they need cleaning. They look fancy too. They come in different colors too.

There is option for a silicone one too.

 

Reusable makeup removersย 

Cotton rounds – they are colorful and come with laundry bag ๐Ÿ™‚

Makeup cloths – they are colorful too and come in different designs ๐Ÿ™‚

Makeup wipes are so bad for the environment. They are equally as bad to your skin especially to the face. Here is more about that subject.

 

Reusable coffee cupย 

There are tons of different designs to the coffee cups and tumblers. There is a UNICORN one ๐Ÿ˜€ They make nice gifts too.ย ย This zodiac one. This one is for the photography lovers, definitely! And I heard that in some coffee places you can get discount if you bring your own.

 

Reusable water bottles

It is important that you choose a non – toxic plastic one if you are going for a plastic one.

If you are worried about the tap water, you can buy inexpensive water filter that can look good on your table and will remind you to drink more water. I have this one and if you are interested if it makes difference, I will be happy to answer your questions.

So, you can buy one an fill your cup with the filtered water ๐Ÿ™‚

This one is funny to me. Tons of different designs, just like the reusable coffee cups.

 

Glitterย 

Did you know that glitter is actually very hurtful? I didn’t! I just found out about is few weeks ago and nothing moved me like this one. I don’t know if it was because it looks really cool, or because I imagined drinking water with glitter and not being able to remove the glitter.

There is bio-degradable glitter. So, before you buy one, read if that glitter is bio-degradable. There is even bio-degradable glitter in sunscreen option. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Take – out food

How much waste does one dinner make? A lot! I know that in Germany, they are big on recycling. I don’t know how it stands in other countries. But even that is not enough.

 

Lunch box options

Tupperware or reuse the plastic containers from (example) cheese

Reuse plastic for your lunch instead of plastic and zip bags. Or fancy lunch box looks good too.ย  This one and this one are more girly options if you are into that ๐Ÿ™‚ย  There are so many differentย options ๐Ÿ™‚

Silicone zipย  bags are great option too if you need something smaller.

 

Avoiding groceries that come in plastic for no reason

Avoiding groceries that unnecessary come in plastic. come in plastic for no reason. I even saw pealed orange in a plastic box. Why?

 

Bio degradable stuff

Bio – degradable trash bags, bio – degradable dog-waste bags, bamboo tooth brush

Even fun can be sustainable with this water baloons.

 

Cleaning products

Chemicals in products can be extremely harmful to us, our sin and health and for the environment. Even on laundry detergents there are warnings about how dangerous they are to the environment.
What you can do is to choose one with the least toxic ingredients.

 

Fast fashion

I was never a fan of this kind of fashion. I am the – EXTRA girl and choose some interesting pieces of clothing. As oppose to some friends that like basic but buy a lot. OK I buy a lot too but I am very picky ๐Ÿ˜€ I see how inexpensive some pieces are and that goes with cost in the background – child labor, exploitation (I would know), toxic dyes and more. Instead of that, try and buy some pieces that you like and would wear for an extended period of time.

 

Simple thingsย 

Turning off drinkable water while you are brushing your teeth, turning off lights, using yellow economical light bulbs (not white because they are actually bad for your eyes), reusing things, reusing containers, reusing old clothes for (example) cleaning the dust…

 

And here it is a fellow blogger that has really good suggestions too so CHECK HER POST as well ๐Ÿ™‚ย  She has cool pics, unlike my post ๐Ÿ˜€

 

As promised, the German and european links (phew… this took me awhile ๐Ÿ™‚ ):

Reusable straws

How can anyone do this, I will never know!

And there are so many videos on this subject but I don’t want to overwhelm me and you.

 

 

WARNING! DISTURBING IMAGES AND VIDEOS TO SOME READERS!

If you think โ€žwhat good can one person doโ€œ – imagine YOUR straw ending in this poor turtle’s nose.

I also saw this video about a whale that showed his stomach was full of plastic.

 

 

 

Explicit images OVER!

I am deeply disturbed by some of the research that I’ve done just to write this post alone. Imagine being the person discovering this disturbing images…

I am not the person that will push the agenda of some sort. But I stop and think if someone asks me nicely. Just like this subject, I was involved in projects for raising awareness about the global warning. That means that I know a lot on this subjects but I am raising awareness politely! You can’t imagine what a difference that makes.

 

As always, stay healthy and happy and remember do to something good for you and others as well ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a good one ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

Media milking the drama about YouTubers

Standard

Hy Readers

Up until 2-3 days ago, media didn’t care about YouTube and the drama surrounding it. It seems really hypocritical to care about them now when there are only bad things and incidents involved. Do people really care only about the bad things?

Where was this media writing about this people when they were doing some good things. They didn’t care!ย 

New York Times writing about some drama. E! news reporting on their news about this too. It is really interesting, especially because media didn’t care to write about these people and their good stuff up until they were involved in a drama and incidents so people really don’t know who they are writing about.

You have this HUGE audience, and instead of using it for good, you are using it to talk about only about the negative things! FOR CLICKS!

I could care less, but spreading only negative vibes and whet it is about bad things and ignoring everything good they’ve done only to get those clicks, that is not ok!
